Wilmington, Del. (April 27, 2017) – Serratore has been working in the pastel medium for over 25 years. During this time his technique and style have evolved. “The more you work at it, the more you grow as an artist. The paintings are a direct result of that growth,” said Serratore.

In “Pastel Progressions,” Serratore harnesses representations of the land to demonstrate the effects of sunlight and spatial depth upon a scene. His use of color and blending techniques create moody, atmospheric landscapes that frame abstracted fields of saturated light and color. Several works showcased at the Mezzanine Gallery will reflect a new exploration of the artist’s evolution.

The exhibition will be on view from May 5-26 with an opening reception on Friday, May 5, from 5-7 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.
